This weekend alone, has been a great one for fundraising ( despite some football interupting it) so special thanks to Nicola, Jude and her son, Derek and Sandra for giving up valuable time and effort to support our cause.
I'd also like to thank everyone who has donated food of late, as things were getting pretty low again. So thanks to everyone who puts things in the Pets At Home bin (including the store itself) Jollyes of both West Denton and Blyth, Carlton Bros and our pals at Pawz For Thought.
It would be hard for us to do what we do without your kind support, thank you all.

Thanks also to everyone who took part or sponsored someone in the last walk. Money is still rolling in, I promise I will give a final figure soon.

I will give you a final figure once it is all collected, but the figure we have already is way beyond our wildest dreams.
Once again people, you have done us proud.

Duke is another SHAK dog that has had a terrible life. He was tormented and abused and was eventually picked up living on a traffic island. He has issues trusting people, and is only beginning to learn how to play with toys. He cheered me up today, but I'm not sure who had the biggest smile, me or him.

First up, CONGRATULATIONS to Tess and her brilliant family on Tess's achievement of the Bronze Kennel Club Good Citizen Award! One of the terms of her foster is that she was to attend one of our approved training classes, she has been, and now has this award. We at SHAK are so proud of her going from a dog no one wanted to being "a good citizen" and also very proud of her family for working so much with her.
I mentioned last week that Doyle had made massive progress in making friends after never seeing another dog other than Bodie. Well, today he and Butch ventured out on a short walk together, and I have to say it was beautiful seeing them both together. Doyle was a little curious, but also quite shy, Butch on the other hand is such a sociable guy that he just got on with his walk. The most interesting thing though was watching them trying to play football with each other with a fence inbetween when they got back to the runs.
With the weather improving (although you wouldn't think so today) today was time for Bodie to lose his dreadlocks. It took two of us, but between Ameri and I we managed the first steps towards stripping this big handsome guy of tats that he has probably had for most of his 8 years. Bodie was a perfect gent, and let us snip away. Both him and Doyle are such a pleasure to be around, and today both proved what stars they actually are.
